Trendy Friday Fun: The aMAZEing Maze

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Today on our Trendy Friday Fun livestream we are excited to show off this week’s PC Community Event map! This isn’t your normal defend-the-Ethernia-Crystal map. Instead of defending the crystal, you must find it. Sounds easy right? We thought so too. After all the time we spent playing every map and seeing every corner of the castle, where could you hide something like that? How about a giant maze the PC Events crew designed just for this event. A maze so impressive, it would make Dominic Cobb proud. We should warn you that get getting lost is not the only danger you will face in this map. It seems like the owner of this maze decided to borrow something from the King Minos mythology.

What could it be? If you are a fan of navigating a labyrinth, corn maze, wheat maze or foggy haze, join @iamisom, @darkpython98 and @laurawantsacow to find out!he event will run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, and we’ll drop Dungeon Defenders II beta codes in the chat.

The aMAZEing MAZE event will be running from Saturday to Tuesday (5/18 – 5/21). To participate, simply sign-up at the following link.

This week the Dungeon Defenders PC Community Events team brings us a new and exciting challenge, the aMAZEing Maze!

With the desire to bring new enjoyable experiences to the players, the team came up with an event that does not involve crystal defending, but instead finding one hidden crystal in a big maze. Of course the players won’t be alone in that maze, they’ll have to face its resident, minotaurs.

This event was also made with new players in mind. The past few event sagas were of increasing difficulty. While some players appreciate the challenge, other newcomers struggled to complete it. This event was built with that in mind. Players will be able to choose the level of difficulty they would like to face and the enemies will scale accordingly.

Trendy Friday Fun: Map Contest 3 Part One

Friday, May 10th, 2013

We’re showing off the first Map Contest entry today on our Trendy Friday Fun livestream. Community mapmaker Nexus will run us through his contest entry, Brookrift Keep.

This three-crystal map opens up dynamically as the match goes on. On waves 5 through 8, you’ll have to defend the Lower Crystal. On waves 9 through 13, you’ll have to protect the Lower and Middle Crystals. On waves 13 through 17, you’ll need to protect the Lower, Middle and Top Crystals.

Nexus created custom textures, materials, sounds and meshes for the map. And just wait until you hear the music. It’s quite epic.

Join @iamisom, @darkpython98 and @laurawantsacow for this special one-hour livestream. The event will run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, and we’ll drop Dungeon Defenders II beta codes in the chat.

Last Call: Dungeon Defenders April Community XP Event for PS3 and 360

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

We can’t believe that April is almost over. Where did our days go? Maybe the question is not ‘where’ but how did the days pass by so quickly. Using only the finest of Elf magic (and asking one very scared Kobold) we found the source of our time dilemma. The Dark Elves managed to use their warriors to jump all the way up to the very top of the castle and install a Time Forwarding Device. Not knowing what to do, we headed over to our Kobold prisoner only to find that he had escaped and alerted the enemy. It is now up to us to hold off the waves of Elves and Ogres the will attack our Ramparts while the castle engineers figure out how to deactivate the Time Forwarding Device before it’s too late!

You guys have voted and here it is. The winning map and modifier are: 2x Speed on The Ramparts!

The PS3 event will take place on Tuesday and the 360 event will be on Thursday. Both events will run from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT. If you are interested in participating, you can go to the PS3 sign-up thread or the 360 sign-up thread. All you will have to do is comment on there with your name, Gamertag/PSN ID and what time of the day (in EDT please) you will be online. PS3 sign-ups close at 11:59 p.m. EDT today, and 360 sign-ups close at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday.

Signing up does not guarantee entry. We’ll randomize entrants and post the final list on a Google doc that I’ll create once I close the thread. You can win 50 million XP and get to talk to us Trendy Folk. Hope to see you guys there!

Trendy Friday Fun: Save Sky City

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Look up at the sky. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Laura? Turns out the Grav-o-Tron that broke down last week managed to lift Laura up into Sky City before it got fixed. Things are not going well in Etheria and Sky City was not spared.

Watch us tackle this twisted map on Trendy Friday Fun. The show starts at 5 p.m. EST. The usual crew will be there — @iamisom, @darkpython98 and @laurawantsacow.

Sign up for the Returnia Shards events by Friday, 11:59 p.m. EST in this thread if you would like to participate. These events will be on Open, and you will have to subscribe to the map once it is made available on our Steam Workshop in order to play. The map will be available to download on Friday at 6 p.m. EST right after the stream is over.


Trendy Friday Fun: Returnia Shards Part III

Friday, March 8th, 2013

After fighting in the harsh desert heat, you’re left craving the one thing that the dry landscape barely provides — water. Whether it’s a cruel twist of fate, or the work of spiteful Djinns, your journey now takes you into the very depths of the ocean. You are returning to Aquanos, and your demise might be the very element you craved so dearly.

Watch us tackle this twisted map on Trendy Friday Fun. The show starts at 5 p.m. EST. The usual crew (@iamisom, @darkpython98) will be there, minus @laurawantsacow. We last saw her flying off into space in the Alchemical Labs. As we tried to chase her, the Grav-o-tron 3000 roared back to life. We were grounded like helpless, adorable penguins.

Sign up for the Returnia Shards events by Friday, 11:59 p.m. EST in this thread if you would like to participate. These events will be on Open, and you will have to subscribe to the map once it is made available on our Steam Workshop in order to play.

This week we’re tackling Part II of the Returnia Shards. This map, called Return to Morrago, will have us brave the sandy city of ancient Djinn. Only the bravest of heroes can conquer the unrelenting heat in order to pass through the city walls. Once inside, that’s when the real danger and adventure begins.

Help @laurawantsacow and @iamisom battle much more than the harsh desert sand and sun. We will also have PC Event Host and map maker Mischief in the stream to aide us and answer all your questions. Join our livestream at Twitch today to learn more about this new Morrago map.

The Returnia Shards Events now run from Saturday to Tuesday, and sign-up threads will remain open until 11:59 p.m. EST Friday night. If you wish to sign up now, visit this link and follow the instructions. A link to the map on the Steam Workshop will be available after the stream, so stay tuned.
